Have you given any thought to playing golf in winter and how to maintain control of the ball when the courses become firmer and faster? Because the course changes its characteristics so much it is very important to consider what ball you are using. Playing with a softer ball may help you gain more control around the greens when the greens become hard and fast. Get expert advice in the shop on how to choose the right ball.
Bounce? – What is bounce?
In winter, the ground becomes firm and as a result, the club will have a higher tendency to bounce off the surface rather than dig in. Making sure that you have the right bounce angle on your wedges can save you multiple shots during a round.
The correct bounce angle prevents the club from bouncing off the surface as well as digging into the surface, ultimately stopping you from “thinning” or “duffing” your chip shots. For more info on what bounce angle you need on your wedges, speak to one of the experts in the shop
